In latest evolution of Gel-Resolution tennis shoe series, Asics has launched new Gel-Resolution 8 model. Loaded with advanced technology and human-centric science approach of Asics Institute of Sports Science (ISS), Gel-Resolution 8 is designed with modern baseline player in mind, giving them edge needed to win long, powerful rallies from back of the court.

Developed with the input of eight-time ATP singles tour titlist, and current top 10 player, Gaël Monfils, the Gel-Resolution 8 boasts unique Asics features such as Dynawall technology, which ensures superior balance of stability and flexibility; Dynawrap technology, a system of panels that cradle the foot and use the players own momentum to maintain an excellent fit, and a unique outsole design that maximises contact area in zones that are crucial to braking, reducing friction when sliding.

According to testing at ISS, the Gel-Resolution 8 delivers 7.2 per cent more dynamic braking force than its predecessor, Gel-Resolution 7- enabling quicker recovery and surefooted returns from the baseline.

“Shoes are very important, I need to trust them and the first thing I look for in tennis shoes is stability – stability and comfort,” said Gaël Monfils, top ATP professional tennis player. “It’s no secret that I am an extreme mover on the court, and with these shoes I feel confident and balanced to return any shot. I've been putting Gel-Resolution 8 to the test and the stability and grip is unreal, no doubt Asics has exceeded my expectations again.”

“Ultimately the Gel-Resolution 8 tennis shoe reflects Asics’ commitment to understanding the mechanics of tennis. In contrast to running, which is principally about moving in straight lines, tennis involves a lot of different movements. It’s our job to focus on those, and every new release takes that to the next level. We’ve been selling tennis shoes since 1952, and as playing styles have evolved and become more physical––from the pro ranks right down to youth tennis––our shoes have adapted to meet those requirements,” said Tatsuya Ishikawa, lead researcher with ISS footwear function development team.

“With tennis shoes, the ultimate goal is to give the wearer more time,” said Isamu Ochi, general manager of Asics CPS footwear division’s product management department. “That means the time to make that crucial return, prepare for the next shot, seize the upper hand and put your opponent on the back foot. Being able to stop and change direction quickly is vital to that, which is where our new Gel-Resolution 8 model comes in.”

Headquartered in Kobe, Japan, Asics is a leading designer, manufacturer and retailer of high-performance athletic footwear, apparel and accessories.

The Asics Institute of Sport Science (ISS) embodies the corporate vision to ‘Create Quality Lives through Intelligent Sport Technology’. Maintaining ‘human-centric science’, the institute focuses on the analysis of natural movements and actions.
